Alfonso Pedraza posts Twitter message after Leeds defeat against Wolves
By Amir Mir
Alfonso Pedraza has urged Leeds to “keep working and thinking” after their 1-0 defeat against Wolves at Elland Road on Monday afternoon.
The 21-year-old started the match for Garry Monk’ s side, who were sitting in the play-off places before a ball was kicked.
However, Nuha Dicko’s first-half strike was enough to seal all three points for Paul Lambert’s men and put their opponents promotion hopes into jeopardy.
It means Leeds are now sitting outside of the top six as they will be looking to fight for a promotion spot along with sixth-placed Fulham and fifth-placed Sheffield Wednesday.
Playmaker Pedraza, who played 72 minutes of the match before being replaced by Doukara, had this to say to supporters after the defeat.

“Disappointed with the result,” Pedraza wrote on his personal Twitter account. “[We] have to keep working hard and [start] thinking [for the] next game. Still a huge fight ahead.”

Pedraza moved to Elland Road during the January transfer window making a loan switch from La Liga outfit Villareal.
When Pedraza first arrived, he struggled for regular game time, but he has recently seen his manager put more faith into him.
The Spaniard has played ten Championship games since his move, starting seven of his side’s last eight league matches.
During that period, his team have suffered three defeats, with the only wins coming against Preston North End and Brighton, both on home soil.
Pedraza will be looking to produce the goods and provide the service for his attackers in the final three games of the campaign, with Burton, Norwich and Wigan awaiting the Yorkshire outfit.
